A 60-year-old pseudophakic male presented with diminution of vision in both his eyes. Diffuse slit-lamp biomicroscopic examination revealed uniform reticular fibers behind the IOL surface interwoven in a fish-net like pattern with intermittent pin-point opacification. This grid-like opacification was evenly carpeted in both horizontal and vertical meridia [Figure 1]. Residual epithelial cells were known to cause regenerative and fibrotic posterior capsular opacification (PCO).[1]However, this fish-net pattern of diffuse PCO is unusual in occurrence and is novel documentation.
